If you like Douglas Adams you’ll love this book.
Because M T McGuire is a member of the Gumbee Fantasy Writers' Guild I knew that her books would be of a high standard, and other reviewers’ comments were all very complimentary, however, I was surprised and delighted at how quickly I was drawn into this book.Set in a parallel earth turning every page was a real treat. From the start the main character, The Pan, leapt out of the book. He is a self-deprecating, ordinary Joe who’s only skill is self-preservation. Living outside the law through no fault of his own and wanting nothing more than to be left alone, he is drawn deeper and deeper into the underworld of society in his quest to simply survive.In style the book is very reminiscent of Douglas Adams’s Long Dark Teatime of the Soul with a touch of Hitchhikers thrown in for good measure. This Si-Fi fantasy is written in a very amusing way but at the same time the plot is interesting and intricately woven.I can give it no greater praise other than to say as soon as I had finished reading it I was compelled to buy The Wrong Stuff, K'Barthan Trilogy: Part 2 and start reading it.
Sora's Quest (The Cat's Eye Chronicles) By T. L. Shreffler
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
Whilst this is not a work of epic fantasy, it is a very readable story to escape into. The violence is not too graphic but still has realism. The characters do not have lengthy back stories but are accessible. It is well paced and entices you to turn the page. A book to read for the enjoyment of the story not a weighty tomb.
Today is a very exciting day! Quest in Time: A Beginning, will be released on Kindle on the 1st of September and is now available to pre-order
The paper back will be out later in September!
